Dit it get overturned? Sit it upright, pull out the plug, spray carb cleaner inside, pull repeatedly to clear oil. Ground the coil wire while pulling or you will ignite the carb cleaner- POOF!

If it is a 4 stroke engine then the sump is over full
if it is a 2 stroke engine then the oil in the fuel is at the wrong ratio and is not burning but is forming the the muffler and running out

SOURCE: troy-bilt gas edger trencher won't start. Spark

Remove spark plug and pour 5mls or one teaspoon of premixed gas in the engine. Depress trottle to full with choke on "run", pull starter about 10 to 12 times If it starts and run for a while and then shuts off your carb needs servicing. If not remove muffler and look for a spark arrestor screen. This could be plugged up with soot. If it is, replace and this would have been your problem. While the muffler is off slowly pull starter rope and examine the piston if gas and oil oozes backwards as the piston moves to the top then the piston and rings need replacing.

SOURCE: My Troy-bilt edger C5 4-cylinder will not start.

Check your fuel filter in the fuel tank to make sure it is clean if it is then"
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

What kind of oil goes in crankcase


Rule of thumb for lawn and garden equipment ...

If it is 2 cycle - gas and oil are mixed - 50 to 1 mix. Some two cycle engines require more oil ... up to 32 to one.

It if is 4 cycle - has a fuel tank and a crank case - 30 weight oil SJ or better service rating.

If you want to become an expert on oil ... go here: http://www.bsehome.net/pdf/OIL_S_EG.PDF

And a final word ... it is always good to refer to the manufacturer recommendations when selecting lubricants. Troy Bilt (no longer manufactured by the Troy Bilt Company in Troy New York) uses a number of different engines on their procducts.

Ive got a troy-bilt gas trimmer tb25cs it has always ran perfect,until now when i start it up aqnd give it gas it stops running and leaks gas


Check and clean your spark arrestor located behind a diverter plate on outside of muffler. You'll need a #25 Torx, or one slot screwdriver and wrench to take the plate off. Clean it with carb cleaner and wire brush and re-install. If this screen gets clogged, it could lead to fuel spray coming out of carb throat. Clean and re-oil the sponge filter while you're at it. Hope it helps!

I am able to crank the trimmer but it does not stay on. in the past it worked just fine but sat unused for roughly 4 months and now this. we own a TB425cs string trimmer. how do i fix this issue?


1) Change out the old fuel (not just adding fresh but pouring out the old and replacing it entirely) and check the engine oil.

2) Check muffler and/or spark arrestor screen for restrictions.

3) Clean and reinstall spark plug (check gap).

4) Replace inlet screen INSIDE the carb. (It is located directly under the inlet needle.)

Try each of these as needed.
Hope this helps!

Rough idel and no throttle on a Troy -bilt BT25ET


It sounds like you have done everything but replaced the fuel filter. Which is usually located in the fuel tank. And clean the muffler. You will probably find some oil and carbine build up.

good luck

How to replace air filter on Troy-bilt TB20CS?


May be air filter but sounds more like your muffler is stopped up. First take the muffler off and see if it runs better without it. If so, burn the carbon out of the muffler and clean the muffler port on the engine. If not, then remove the four screw at the very end and disassemble. The ait filter is in that area.

Troy built cultivator will only idle 26cc 5yrs old


Problably not sucking air, but not getting enough air. Does your cultivator use gas/oil mix or straight gas? If it is a gas/oil mix the muffler is probably stopped up with carbon and cutting off the air flow. Try removing the muffler and see if it runs better.
